That is going to be an awesome event!!!! Unfortunately, I am going to be on the east coast on vacation and can't attend.

The fact that it is for charity and is tax deductible is excellent...... I hope all who attend have an amazing time!!!

Street only? I would do AD08s or PSS the RE11 have better ultimate grip but were noiser, didn't wear as well, and felt a bit more numb.

What do you think about the Toyo R888's?

Toyo R888 are R compound tires. They have a very low tread wear rating and are probably very noisy for road use. They are semi slicks and probably arent the best for wet on a daily. They are meant for track but being street legal enough to drive on them there. You would also most likely ruin the heat cycles out of them.

Have to agree, plus with how cold it can be here in morning and evening they would be pretty sketchy!

That's aggressive PoP. We usually get snow in April so I'd be careful. Depending on your commute you may be okay. But then again I never worry about my driving. It's all those other people in Calgary........

Don't forget we get the MOST snow in April. Unless you have another ride I wouldn't.

Hey guys, my friend opened up a tunning shop in the SW. Nice service there, and better rates compare to Tunerworks. Let me know If you guys wanna get something done to your car, I can pm his phone number to you. : ). By the way, my car has completely changed inside out from last meeting. Just cant stop modding it lol....

Thanks guys. I had to drive to work but it has changed as our office moved to downtown 5 months ago. So I dont have to drive my car so often. I am thinking about changing my tires sometime in April if the weather stays like this. We will see ....

Mine will stay on until late April. I joined the darkside this week (GTR) so it will likely get summers thrown on soon.
